Artist Olan Ventura clever updates on 17th Century Still LifesPhilippino artist Olan Ventura paints still life with energy. Using acrylics, Ventura provides twists on the old masters’ works, such as Jan Davidsz de Heem’s Vase of Flowers (c. 1660). Ventura makes the old work come alive with splashes and drips.
